October 3-5th – This workshop will consist of one-on-one instruction, demonstrations, critiques, and plenty of time for painting by the students. Penix will demo a painting in the mornings with the students painting from photographs in the afternoon. Plenty of photos will be provided, but students can bring their own photos if they prefer. Penix will cover topics such as the power of warm and cool, complementaries, harmony, edges, shape-quality, variety, simplifying, and loosening brushwork. There will be a strong emphasis on seeing the dialog of masses and shapes, overcoming fear and successfully painting from photographs.October 3-5th – Learn how to use glazing to enhance the richness of your colors, unify your light/shadow passages, and create visual depth & atmosphere in your artwork.  We’ll focus on how & when to finesse your edges, and we’ll tune in to the subtleties of value & temperature. We’ll paint simple beauty from life, and work towards developing a more nuanced appreciation of it.  We’ll also explore the limitations/advantages of reference photos, so feel free to bring your iPad or smartphone.  Demonstrations, Q & A’s, plenty of easel time, and individual attention & critiques provided.October 4-7th – Good color, or color that expresses the light key of nature, can make even the most mundane subject matter strikingly beautiful. This 4-day, plein-air workshop introduces a way of seeing and using color to paint the landscape—by capturing the time and type of day through accurate color relationships. The focus will be on structuring the landscape—what is important to include and what to leave out—as well as, relating large notes of color to express the big masses, light key, and aerial perspective. Camille will do demonstrations throughout the workshop.*New Harmony Hoosier Salon Workshop Cancellation/Refund Policy
